There was a topic asking about what was 3d studio max and how much it costs, etc.
This made me remember about a free version of the powerful professional 3d package Maya (by alias wavefront)...
It's only for learning purposes, not commercial but nevertheless, users can get a feel of the 2000-7000 dollar program for free...
the catch is : "The Maya Personal Learning Edition restricts users to non-commercial applications through the display of a watermark on images as well as through the use of a special non-commercial file format."
so ur work wil have a maya watermark...but you still get to try it without spending couple grand on it..

free version of light wave works great too ... no water marks or anything like that. Student version. It's what I use for my 3D stuff. Just don't try to upgrade it or you'll have to uninstall and reinstall ... umm can IM me for a link if you want it.
